5-10, 180 pound speedster A.J. Alexander, a four-star wide receiver out of Altoona, Pa. area, will take on official visit to Clemson this weekend.

"I am going to take an official visit to Clemson this weekend," he said. "I want to see the stadium. I want to see Death Valley and meet the coaches. Looking forward to it."

While this will be his first trip to the Palmetto state, A.J. does have a relative i South Carolina.

"My aunt lives in South Carolina, but I have never been down there. She lives in Myrtle Beach," said Alexander.

The North Carolina Tar Heels recently got an official visit for Alexander.

"I went to North Carolina the weekend before last. It was real fun. I really enjoyed it. The weather was nice. The campus was nice. I really liked the coaches," said Alexander.

"I already took an official visit to Tennessee also. I went there about three weeks ago. It was good."

Three teams are fighting for his final two official visits.

"I will choose from Penn State, Pittsburgh and Florida," said Alexander.

What will be important when Alexander selects his college destination?

"The coaches will be. I want to go where I know I can trust the coaches. I will look at if I like the area. I want to find somewhere that I know I can enjoy college," replied Alexander.

Don't expect a decision until close to signing day.

"It will probably be around signing day. I want to take my mom back to all of these places. She hasn't been on any of the visits. She won't be coming this weekend either," said Alexander.

Does Alexander prefer the big city or a small college town?

"I like the city a lot. I go to Pittsburgh a lot. I want to go where I will have stuff to do on the weekends. I don't want to go somewhere that there is only 500 hundred people in the town."

Alexander also said his senior season has already concluded.

"We lost last Friday 7-6 in the first round of the playoffs. I would rather lose 40-0. We had a touchdown called back and we missed three field goals so it was kind of tough," said Alexander.
